!4-year-old rock climbing extraordinaire

At just 14 years old, Ashima Shiraishi is  considered to be one of the best rock climbers in the world. The New York City-based school girl started playing around on Rat Rock in Central Park when she was seven, and was climbing routes many adults can't finish by the time she was eight. Now she's the only woman and the youngest person of any gender to climb a rock wall with a difficulty grade of 9a+ which is the third most difficult grade in existence. The film is courtesy of VICE Sports and YouTube.
